send up the batsignal! series 2: good guys

ROBIN

At some point we have to stop being guided by others; we have to stop living our lives through examples set by other people, and start deciding for ourselves what to do, how to act, and what kind of person we ought to be. Batman can inspire us, but in the end we, like Dick Grayson, have to take charge of our own lives and give up the comfort of living in the shadow of the Bat.*

*William Irwin, Mark D. White, Tobert Arp. Batman and Philosophy: The Dark Knight of the Soul. Leaving the Shadow of the Bat. (2008), 265.
